About Us

Bentley University is a place for successful leaders who set out to create positive change in communities, organizations and the world. At Bentley, we believe in doing business and doing good at the same time.

The Office of Sustainability's mission is to mobilize sustainable leadership in business by educating students on the business imperative of the "triple-bottom line" -- considering the social and environmental impacts of business decisions along with the economic results. By modeling sustainable organizational operations and providing students with experiential learning opportunities, the Office of Sustainability aims to both set an example for sustainable business practices and prepare students for work in today's business world.

Bentley is finding innovative ways to reduce its carbon footprint while continuing to support the top-rated resources the campus has to offer. As part of this work, the Office of Sustainability explores, discusses and educates the campus community on the intersectionality of social justice, racial justice and climate justice.

Collaboration and enthusiasm among students, faculty and staff alike ensures that Bentley's sustainability efforts are not simply actions of a small group of administrators, but the accomplishments of the entire community.

Our Mission is to mobilize sustainability leadership in business by:

" "

Modeling sustainable operations.

" "

Supporting sustainability teaching in the classroom.

" "

Partnering with the business community to expand career opportunities for Bentley’s graduates.
